We are excited to report that annecto has seen overwhelming success in the recently-announced 2020 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR). More broadly, the allocation results across Australia include:
- 4,098 new residential aged care places
- $150 million capital grant funding
- 1,028 short-term restorative care (STRC) places
Among these figures, many of our regions have been successful in receiving STRC places, a true testament to the outstanding work carried out each day by our dedicated staff.
Allocation details are as follows:
- ACT – 7 places
- MNC – 4 places
- OFW – 1 place
- SES – 8 places
- SWS – 2 places
- WS – 5 places
- LMR – 8 places
- Nepean – 2 places
- Sunshine coast – 8 places
While we continue to play an active role in providing STRC places in a variety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia, this latest allocation presents a very exciting opportunity for annecto to realise support in other diverse communities, including LGBTQI+, CALD and rural communities.
We can’t wait to see what this opportunity brings for the people we support and our staff, and congratulate all those involved in developing the submission.
